Hospice Blanket Donation Opportunity

hospice blanketAttention Knitters & Crafters!
Are you looking for a rewarding way to share your wonderful talents and projects with others? The Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills is accepting donations of handmade lap blankets for hospice patients. Hospice patients use these blankets on their laps or around their shoulders. Your handmade gift will provide a sense of comfort and warmth to patients dealing with a life-limiting illness.

Requirements: In general, any fabric or yarn is fine as long as it’s washable and feels gentle and soft against your skin. Approximate size : 4’X5′ (doesn’t need to be exact) Please keep in mind that some of the patients are in a wheelchair and long blankets might get caught in the wheels.

For more information contact Angela Whitt, Coordinator of Volunteers, at 908-766-0180 ext. 115 or awhitt@visitingnurse.org.
